fair. katie couric is a different story. now, katie couric asked you an easy question and you booted it, governor. >> i sure did. >> what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand. >> i read most of them, again with a great appreciates for the press, for the media. >> like ones specifically? i'm curious. >> all of them. bill: if somebody asks what do you read? you say i read the "new york times," the "wall street journal," the "the washington post." i can reel them off in my sleep. you couldn't do it? >> well, of course i could. it's ridiculous to suggest that or to say that i couldn't tell people what i read. because by that point already the t. was relatively early in that multi segmented interview with katie couric. it was quite obvious that it was going to be a bit of an annoying interview with a badgering of the questions. it seemed to me that she didn't know anything about alaska, about my job as governor, about my accomplishments as a mayor or a governor, my record, and a question like that, though, yeah,

press picked up on, cloth interview with katie couric. whatever i did speak to katie couric the other night. we are going to have a really interesting interview with sarah palin. it came across as her setting the record straight, ellis, not pitching. >> it's her version of setting the record straight is that the mccain yacks were mean to me. >> she is complimentary to the senator. a few of them. >> it's not just them. the alaska ethics thing completely unfair. right? the job was, what, too boring? didn't pay enough? something. we still don't know what was wrong with the job of being governor. shepard: she -- bill: she needed to make money. >> she needs to move beyond this i'm the victim here. income politics is tough. bill: did i not take that from the book. i'm being honest. did i not take the victim deal from the book. go ahead mary katharine. >> i think is is set the record straight tour. ellis is right. what needs to happen now is after the tour is over and the media will cover her badly as it always does and become unfair to her. say her part and move on to other things. th

with the press. >> let's talk about the interview with katie couric. >> must we? [ laughter ] >> ok. >> you talk about it in the book, so i assume everything in the book is fair game. >> it is. >> you do say it wasn't your best interview. do you think that was a seminole defining moment for you, that interview? >> did not. neither did the campaign. in fact that is why segment two and three and four and maybe five were scheduled. the campaign said right on, good, you are showing your independence. this is what america needs to see and it was a good interview. i'm thinking if you thought that was a good interview. i don't know what a bad interview was because i knew it wasn't a good interview. bill: by the way, one week from tonight, sarah palin will make her first appearance on the factor. it will be big. check two in a bizarre interview last night. the overexposed carrie prejean met with a rather befuddled larry king who repeated her about a now settled lawsuit. >> so what you are saying is in mediation it was discussed why you were mediating? >> larry, it's completely confidential.

going to be an uphill climb because those katie couric interviews are going to live on youtube forever. her resignation. primary opponents will bring that up. bill: but, she is doing so much media now with oprah, the factor. big media everybody is going to see her. if she comes across well, that obliterates, does it not? >> it okay and it doesn't matter to her thousands and thousands of fans. they love her no matter. what they are very, very loyal. bill: your book, scott, is generous to the governor. it's not a slam book at all. >> we try to be as fair as we possibly can. bill: you came to the conclusion. what was your final conclusion about the governor. >> she is someone who is always underestimated. throughout her whole career she has always been underestimated. so for people to write her off is really a big mistake. bill: what conclusion did you come. >> to we really wanted to turn -- as you know during the campaign the media wanted -- well, she was perceived as either an idiot or she was loathed. we want to make her into three dimensional character. we really think we succeeded in

isn't true, make your judgments. >> katie cuouric did some of other own and she did a parody of night before xhm, she wrote a poem, i guess she wrote it. here is one of the lines. the republican votes right now total zero, but a trigger could make one woman a hero. >> cal, what do you think? >> i would say it was the night before christmas and all through the of press not a creature was stirring and that's why i'm depressed. >> and right. >> to me the media have a social agenda and a political agenda that they use to advance their social agenda. whether it's nationalized health care fo everybody whether it works or not. same sex marriage, abortion, high spending and more. and if you understand that, you can filler the information you're getting through that prism. >> jeanie, do you agree that the mainstream media are sort of cheerleading health care reform? >> i think some of them are, some of them aren't. but i agree with elliss in that it's really something when you need to look to michael steele and the g.o.p. advertisement to find out how much money is being afforded and awarded i

example of her not liking god's plan. >> she did not like it when she went on katie couric. bill: that was a free will decision made by her in a campaign. let me give you something i took away from the book. she accepted the fact that she was born -- that her baby had down syndrome. she could have aborted the baby but she did not because of god's will. i admire that. >> she talked about considering abortion and she said i could have gone off and had an abortion and nobody would have known. everybody said isn't that great. suppose she said that two years later and said i have this down syndrome baby. i can't handle it. i can throw him off a cliff and nobody would know. bill: i think you summed it up well in the beginning. everybody's faith is personal. i don't question people's faith. i did not question sarah palin's in her book. thank you very much. attorney general grilled in the senate over the al qaeda trials. body language, take the first look at my interview with sarah palin that will begin tomorrow night. bill: all the polls rejecting americans policy of trying khalid sheikh moha
